the scenes? >>s this feels like a pretty familiar pattern in campaigns where things are not going well. you'll remember andrea, in 2004, kerry was wobbly, the old clinton gang, late in the campaign, was around this time in 2004. when you get in trouble and the sort of chorus of professional republican operatives in washington sort of complaining inevitably what happens is one of theirs comes in and tries to sort of help right the ship. it generally doesn't have dramatic effects, that is, if there are structural problems wrong with the campaign, september is not the time to fix them. >> john harris with our politico briefing, thank you very much. >> thanks a lot. >>> and how are we going to protect our embassies? we'll talk to someone who has been there and seen it all and send me your thoughts on facebook and twitte twitter @mitchellreports. this is "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc. your moi?

. the low 30s view it favorably. i would say the problem we talked about it, when it happened, is gaffes or errors or missteps or things you don't want out in public that make it in the public are most damaging when they reinforce a perception that either undecided voters or the public more generally have about you. that perception created i would say by millions and millions of dollars by barack obama spending in swing states is that mitt romney is a wealthy person who is buy and large looking out for the wealthy and dismissive of the poor and middle class. video reinforced that and i would say i would point to an nbc/wall street journal poll, when you mention the middle class and romney ad, nbc wall street journal asked which candidate cares more or is more focused on the middle class. obama had a 19 point lead, 53/34 on that. i don't think mitt romney wins that question even if he wins the election but he can't lose it that badly. >> chris aliz scizilla, and tha karen. thank you for joining us. >> joining me for a closer look into the race, vin weber adviser to the romney campaign and
